WHAT DO OUR STUDENTS SAY?
Show More

"It is rare to come across a naturally gifted vocal coach like Alana. Not only is she brilliant and effective at developing the voice, but she makes you feel at ease and confident in your ability. 

 

Her drive and experience make her unique, dedicated and a inspirational role model to all she teaches, no matter what age."
